It's hard to notice subtle changes in your own appearance.
You don't notice your pale skin until it's really pale. You don't notice a few extra pounds until you've put on ten.

And you don't notice hair loss until you've lost a bunch of it.
Male pattern baldness
You're not alone. Male pattern baldness (MPB), or androgenic alopecia, is extremely common.

It affects up to 30% of men by the age of 30 and 50% of men by the age of 50.
The causes
Don't just blame mum
Genetics: There is definitely a strong genetic component to going bald. Many guys point the finger at their mother's male relatives. This is probably unfair, as paternal genetics have just as much of a role to play.
The love/hate hormone
DHT is a necessary hormone for male development, but it's the culprit that's causing you to lose your hair. Treating hair loss isn't as simple as wiping out your body's DHT, because you need that androgen for other functions.
Lifestyle causes
🍷 Alcohol

People who drink more than the recommended number of standard drinks a day risk balding.

🚬 Smoking

Men who smoke are twice as likely to be bald.

💪 Anabolic Steroids

Yes, you guessed it. Steroids cause hair loss (and manboobs).

Other causes
Underlying issues
Apart from age and family history, certain medical conditions, such as diabetes and lupus are also factors. If you have either of these you should visit your GP regularly.
Luck of the draw
Sometimes the cause of your hair loss is unknown and is just bad luck. A combination of unlucky genetics and environmental factors all play a role.
The treatments
Oral treatments
DHT blockers
  • Most effective for preventing further hair loss
  • Suppresses as much as 70% of DHT.
  • These work for 9/10 males.
  • Some guys experience results as fast as three months, but it could take as much as a year.
Natural
Proven to help prevent testosterone conversion to DHT. This is a natural supplement that is complementary with DHT blockers & the spray.
Other treatments
Spray
  • Widening blood vessels, allowing more blood (full of oxygen and nutrients) to your hair follicles.
  • 1/3 of guys experience regrowth using the spray.
  • You should see results between three and six months, although results do vary
Shampoo
Isn't as effective as DHT blockers or the Spray, but it's a useful tool to add to your arsenal. For best results, use it like a shampoo (massage in and leave on your scalp for 5-10 minutes) about twice a week.
